Inspired by monitor speakers of the 1970s and the current growth in demand for vintage/retro audio products, French brand Elipson Audio has announced the introduction of their new Heritage XLS15 loudspeakers.

Vintage in design but, say Elipson, versatile in function, this new Elipson speaker is supplied with two different bases and one optional Norstone stand, enabling the sound to be directed towards the listener.

3 Way Loudspeaker

This 3-way loudspeaker has been tuned as a bass reflex design with front-firing flared port that can be plugged for further low frequency adjustment depending on placement.  Driver complement includes a new 30cm diameter cellulose coated bass unit with high power magnet, a new 55mm diameter treated dome mid-range driver covering nearly three octaves and a 22mm diameter silk dome tweeter, found on the flagship model of the Prestige Facet series.

A retro vintage styled workspace interior in Taipei, Taiwan.

A finite measurement of 2dB allows you to adjust the mid and high frequency levels according to your listening room or music genre.  In addition, inserting the base plinth (supplied) creates a 7° tilt for acoustic phasing or the optional metal stand from sister company Norstone raises it by a further 19 cm from the floor.
